Ollie is originally from Reading, but moved to Devon when he was 10 years old. Moving so close to the coast he immediately headed to the beach to learn how to surf. His first experieince of riding waves was on a family holiday in Mawgan Porth near Newquay. Ollie has also been a keen skier and has been taking to the slopes during the winter since he can remember. As a qualified ski instructor, Ollie is lucky to be able to spend his winters working as a ski instructor in Switzerland and a surf instructor during the summer. He has surfed all over the world in both warm and cold climates. Indonesia and the Outer Hebridies are amoung his favourite waves.
